Mike Falls Up
by Candy Gourlay
illustrated by Carles Ballesteros
Mike and pup, Bowow, are busily resting at the summit of one of the Chocolate Hills (Bohol province, Philippines) when a sudden mini earthquake causes a CRACK! followed by the THWACK! of an airborne birthday invitation which invites Mike to fall up- yes UP, not down- into a fireplace in Kaneisha's home in snowy London! Next on the agenda in this zany beginner reader is a fantastical party hosted by Rocky the Rock Monster with games of Pass the Puppy, Monster's Footsteps and a feast of chocolate bolder cake. A fun and mischievous early chapter book and an adventure in making unexpected friends. 'This story is good', says Georgia, aged 10 (Letterbox Library reviewer), 'and shows that things can seem scary at first but are not'. Age 5-8, Paperback 87pp
